The guys who have been here on this board for a while know I have one.

They are correct in stating I have a personal Cent not a business one which is harder to obtain as all the requirements which need to be met are all done on personal finances. This means you need to meet the qualifications on your own and not through large business purchases.

I never said it is easy to get one, I just choose not to embellish it.

As for losing some benefits, as stated, it does not bother me one bit. It's all lounge access only. I travel predominantly on business and first class so I get lounge access automatically on the carrier I fly with. Thus my nonchalant attitude toward losing it.

Envy.Envy.Envy. I was good enough with $ that I was able to retire at age 44, but even in my best years, I would not have come close to their minimum spend requirement. Probably why I could afford to retire. But I am Old School, and I still lust after the symbolic value.

Ah well.

I'll take retirement in my mid-40's any day over a Cent card...That's quite an accomplishment these days.

Thanks Fast and Rocky. Looks like you are doing all right yourself. Have fun with those $100,000 yacht gas tank fills on your card that I read about :) .

I am going to settle for a visa black until I garden a little more. Then I am going to get my Centurion card.
